Well, it was not a failure! It worked perfectly. So, here’s what I did.
1. Remove all of the books as well as the shelves.
3. Continue to tape at various points down the paper then cut the paper at the bottom so that it ends with the bottom shelf.
4. Replace the shelves and books and you’re done!
I really wanted to bring a pop of color to these bookcases and this did just that. It didn’t take me long at all and I can easily change it when the mood strikes.
